This is where strategic positioning is helpful. You just move towards the closest health globe (while still attacking with DR), and BAM, heal for 20K health (in my case). There is usually a bunch of health globes lying around (since I save them for occasions such as this). I also tend to shut down my SW if it's buffed with FitL and other buffs, and also shut down my MoC/Overawe when I find myself up against RD packs, respam SW for less damage so that my HP doesn't plummet as fast (if at all) while I still get my attacks in. The fights last longer, but survivability is upped.
You are right in that it's unreliable at times, but it is not without it's uses in higher MPs. Plus the bonus also applies to potions, so each time I down a potion, it's also a 20K heal as opposed to a 12K heal. Truth be told, I think it may be too much of a crutch for me but it'll be hard for me to take this off because it is such a cheap way to use as a secondary form of heal/sustain.
